    Using Visual Means to Challenge Stereotypes

    The primary goal of this project is to change the intellectual and emotional climate surrounding the idea of scientific research in order to increase the number of women and girls who choose to pursue careers related to the physical sciences and mathematics, and to retain, at the high school and university level and beyond, women who have already chosen such careers.

    The other major goal is to encourage scientific literacy by humanizing the image of science and the scientist.
